The Russia Program, the new university-based analytical center created by the George Washington University in partnership with GEODE

27 January 2023

We are very pleased to announce the launch of The Russia Program, a university-based analytical center created by the George Washington University in partnership with GEODE in order to provide new ways of studying Russia after February 24, 2022. 

Hosted at the Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (IERES) at George Washington University, The Russia Program founds a novel research ecosystem that renews our methodological toolkit and creates new knowledge commons designed not only for the scientific community, but also for a broader audience. 

Within this framework, the “New Methodological School” offers seminars and academic courses designed to explore contemporary Russia through innovative methods of data collection and aggregation such as open source intelligence research.

REPORT – The discreet action of Russian channels in Western conspiracy circles

REPORT – The discreet action of Russian channels in Western conspiracy circles

GEODE Report
November 16, 2022

This research note extends the analysis of content sharing between Telegram channels presented in our previous study. We show that by increasing the depth of a query generated by the Telegram analysis tool developed by GEODE, we can better understand the integration of pro-Russian channels into Western conspiracy sphere. We can also refine our understanding of the content and internal structures of different conspiracy communities.
